Seoul Sagas: October 6, 2012 part two

Recommended Posts

Continuing from where I left off... heading south from Geumjeong to Dangjeong station:

 

 

 

 

After some train action at Dangjeong, I finally start to head up to Seoul, but I stop at Myeonghak station:

Then I head to Singil station and wait for a special express train that runs 3 times a day on the weekdays (kinda like the (Z) if you can call the (Z) train an express :P )

The car on the left was built in early 1980, saved from retirement in 2000-2002, and connected to an active trainset:

These screen doors are the oldest for an aboveground station.... (they even have weeds starting to grow near them!)

East to Seoul again... this train was refitted with new doors:

Some more videos after the Dangjeong station action video... I was testing my new Sony Alpha A57's movie option...

 

 

 

A bullet train taking the slower route:

 

 

 

 

Two express subway trains on shared regional rail tracks:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Singil station trains (all bullet trains use this trackage thorough this station, shared with slower regional rail trains):

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the special express train!

 

 

 

 

A map for reference again:

I would not railfan the Seoul Metro anymore from this time until December due to my busy schedule, but I would go to Hawaii during the first week of November. One part has already been posted, and can be seen here: http://www.nyctransitforums.com/forums/topic/38110-hawaii-day-one/ . When time permits, I will post the other parts of my Hawaii adventures. But for now, stay tuned!

I don't think it is necessary to say that it is very similar to Tokyo urban/suburban railway stations.  :D

Do you have nice announcement songs ?

Korail is the National railway company of South Korea ? Like the JNR in Japan before the privatization ?

You could say that... and Japan even made some of our railway lines!
